Recent security leaks putting US lives at risk, Special Ops chief says

ASPEN, Colo. –  Recent national security leaks have put lives at risk and may ultimately cost Americans their lives unless there is an effective crackdown, the head of the Special Operations Command Admiral William McRaven says.

"The President and Capitol Hill are taking these leaks very very seriously,"  McRaven said Wednesday night at the Aspen Security Forum. "We need to do the best we can to clamp down because sooner or later it is going to cost people their lives or it is going to cost us our national security."*

In his first wide-ranging public interview since the Usama Bin Laden raid in May 2011, McRaven told the annual conference, which brings together the nation's top minds on national security, that President Obama was a "fantastic" commander in chief. 

McRaven also heaped praise on former CIA Director and current Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, who he said was not fixated on who would get the credit if the mission was a success.

*NOTE:  While we respect Admiral McRaven's service to his country, we do not share his view that President Obama is a fantastic Commander-in-Chief.  Rather, we believe that President Obama will make a much better former Commander-in-Chief.
